Item details

Finally the clapper (and other pressing tools ) is back.
I know I for a long time thought my grandmother overworked it when she used this pressing what she just sewed. But I have regretted it so many times after that not asking her for where she found that clapper.
But now I'm so glad I finally have been able to find someone who could make me a high quality, heavy, genuine clapper made of finest scandinavian oak. Eversince I started taking Craftsy classes online and a lot of the instructors there showed how incerdible tool this is I've been looking for one. I did not think for one minute that it would be so hard but after looking for almost three years I realised that if I wanted to get the quality and durability I was looking for I had to go to our local carpenter and tell him what I needed. I did that and after a lot of testing and trying back and forth (I scanned the internet of all tips and info regarding clappers)both regarding shape and type of wood that worked best I got what I wanted and I've loved using it ever since. I realized that since I had so much trouble finding one there are probably more people like me so I asked the carpenter who helped if it would be possible to make some more and sell here and he promised to help me.

The clapper is the perfect professional pressing device.

What you get buying this is a clapper that gives you supercrisp edges, great hems,long lasting sharp creases for areas such as seams, pleats and darts. It is also used to flatten bulky seams or facings, collar edges, and folded edges on hard-to-press fabrics. It is also great if you are an embroiderer. Press your embroidery and than use your clapper and you will see a big diffrence.
I have two variations of this clapper one regular and one mini.
Both clapper is carved out to be easier and much more comfortable to hold. The depth of this carving is approx 2/8" (0,5 cm) and the height is approx 7/8" (2 cm)
The regular clapper is
length - 10 1/2" (26,5 cm)
width - 2 1/2" (6,5 cm)
height - 1 5/8" (4 cm)

The miniclapper is
lenght - 5 1/8" (13 cm)
width - 2 1/2" (6,5 cm)
height - 1 5/8" (4 cm)
